Speaking from personal experience, Sean McKay is one of the finest charter boat operators on the Antrim Coast. Having lived and fished from Ballycastle his entire life, his knowledge of tides, seasons, species and methods of catching them is un-surpassed. I have lost count of the spectacular and memorable angling trips Sean has provided both for me, as an individual, and my angling club over the years. My knowledge of deep-water angling began by watching and learning Sean's techniques over the years, which has been in-valuable in what-ever success I have had in targeting deep-water species on my own boat.
